Hopefully Darren McFadden owners devised a contingency plan for their fantasy lineups. It appears as though McFadden won't be playing against the Chargers on Sunday night. McFadden suffered a hamstring injury in Week 4 and hasn't been practicing since. Rashad Jennings filled in for McFadden with 45 rushing yards along with eight catches for 71 yards against the Redskins.
Fantasy impact: This shouldn't come as much of a surprise for McFadden owners. He was listed as doubtful heading into Sunday and Jennings has been getting more reps in practice as a result. Jennings will likely get the bulk of the Raiders backfield duties with Marcel Reece practicing in a limited capacity on Friday due to a knee injury. Jennings should see plenty of touches and targets against a San Diego defense that is 9th in points allowed to fantasy running backs. Plug Jennings into your lineup as a RB2 or high-end flex if you have the ability to do so.
